Re: The Rainer Schuettler Cheering Thread

I saw the highlight of his matches from ARAG's site and his passing shots were soooooo good. Of course it only showed the best of the matches but he got to have confidence to make those shots.

Re: The Rainer Schuettler Cheering Thread

Today (Wednesday) Rainer got an award from the ATP for his great season in 2003, I would say a kind of MOST IMPROVED PLAYER AWARD we know from the NBA or other leagues.

This fact is really astonishing: Rainer improved his year-end ranking for nine consecutive years!!! no other player could do that!

Quote:
ATP ehrt Schüttler für stetige Verbesserung

Düsseldorf (dpa) - Rainer Schüttler ist am Rande des World Team Cups für sein herausragendes Tennis-Jahr 2003 geehrt worden. Die Herren-Profi-Vereininung ATP zeichnete den 28 Jahre alten Korbacher in Düsseldorf als den am meisten verbesserten Spieler der Vorsaison aus. Den Preis, eine Kristall-Trophäe, überreichte ATP-Europa-Chef Horst Klosterkemper.

Schüttler belegte bei der Abstimmung unter seinen Spielerkollegen klar Platz eins. «Deshalb ist es eine besondere Auszeichnung, auf die ich stolz bin», sagte er. Mit der deutschen Mannschaft will der Hesse durch einen Sieg über Titelverteidiger Chile erstmals seit 1998 das Endspiel des World Team Cups erreichen. «Für die Mannschaft wäre es sehr wichtig. Deutschland ist schon lange reif für den Titel, ich hoffe, wir holen ihn jetzt», betonte die deutsche Nummer eins.

Schüttler hatte im vergangenen Jahr bei den Australian Open erstmals ein Grand-Slam-Finale erreicht und stand beim abschließenden Masters Cup der acht besten Profis im Halbfinale. Als einzigem Spieler gelang ihm bei allen vier Grand-Slam-Wettbewerben zumindest der Einzug in das Achtelfinale, bei den Turnieren in Tokio und Lyon holte sich Schüttler die Titel. Das Champions Race beendete er als Sechster und verbesserte sich damit zum neunten Mal nacheinander in der Rangliste. Dies hat kein anderer aktiver Spieler geschafft.

http://de.sports.yahoo.com/040519/27/ptl.html
Schüttler said it's a special honor and it means a lot for him that not journalists or ATP officials gave him this award, but the players from the ATP tour!
yes, Rainer!

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Re: The Rainer Schuettler Cheering Thread

Thanks for the article, Neely! Well-deserved honour for Rainer

Rainer lost his match today against Massu He fought a lot to hang in there but Massu was better. But overall he played well in World Team Cup. Now good luck in Paris, Rainer

Re: The Rainer Schuettler Cheering Thread

I read that he came out flat in 1st set vs Massu. He wanted to win the World Team Cup for Germany so much but came up short.

Good Luck in RG, Rainer

Re: The Rainer Schuettler Cheering Thread

stupid coincidence, isn't it, that Rainer won 3 out of 4 meeting, but made only 2 games in their only meeting on clay so far


but at least Rainer improved a lot since 2001

Carlos --- C'MON Lleyton!!! --- Kiwi!!! --- Jürgen --- Juan

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy

Cool pix, thanks for them!

My German guys are like the cast of the Wizard of Oz:

Rainer = Lion
Kiwi = Scarecrow
Tommy = Tin Man
Flo = Dorothy

...but I still love 'em
